't be headed to virginia. it's affecting the president in some of his campaigning this week with bill clinton. do we know if anything else could be changing because of the storm? >> one of the big things you saw, the without -- president obama has decided to stay here in d.c. at the white house to monitor sandy. mitt romney has changed the schedule so he will be back up in ohio with paul ryan. but one of the things that's going to be interesting sellery voting actually started this weekend -- is early voting actually started this weekend. in florida, maryland, there were lines in d.c. there's been encouragement for voters to get out this weekend and too thedo their early votine hurricane sandy comes through and messes up everything. >> i saw pictures over the weekend from joe johns, polling places in virginia. looked to be very long lines. people trying to get in before the storm hits. let me ask you this -- oftentimes in politics, in october before the big election, people talk about an october surprise. might this be the october surprise, this go round? >> you know, this is certainly surpri
been canceled and even president obama isn't going to ohio tomorrow. he's going to let bill clinton, the former president campaign for him in youngstown, ohio instead. it looks like mitt romney is going to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the pres
. that rally did go on but not with him. with former president bill clinton as the starring attraction instead. but president obama had to cancel this and the reason is on the bottom of your screen. it's hurricane sandy. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house. we just heard the president making a plan for this big public announcement at 12:45. anything other than updating where we stand and what people need to do, depending on where they live? >> reporter: we're still trying to get more details on that. but we expect it will simply be an update at 12:45 on what the president has lrnd coearned comt of this meeting going on right now. the president getting briefed from some of the senior members of his team including janet napolitano and craig fugate and john brennan. the follows some of the briefings the president has been getting over the weekend. he also went over to fema headquarters where he had a chance to get a firsthand glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way
and mika are hosts of "morning joe." >> one thing we do know, bill clinton is going to be very nervous about having to fill all that space by himself today without barack obama. he's going to do great in orlando, obviously. but mitt romney had momentum. you look at ohio, ohio poll that came out, had him dead locked. minnesota poll, three. gets the endorsement from "des moines register." in that state that's a big deal. this is mitt romney's best weekend and it stops. the momentum stops. you don't know how it freezes the race but you certainly know that it's a new dynamic into the race and it changes everything with a week to go. >> the question is how. a lot of people have different theories which candidate it benefits. ate moment for the president to be commander-in-chief, to be presidential, but there are pitfalls with that. >> it sure is. there are pitfalls because something could go wrong and people could maybe perhaps, the president isn't doing enough. but if this storm is as big as it portends to be, expect command centers up and down the coast and the not be very visible at all
think 1992 when president bush the first was running for re-election against bill clinton. did his handling of that storm in any way affect the elections' outcome. of course, for the record, bush lost. >> well, you know, the difference is that was in august of '92. and it did hurt him because the democrats had a couple of months to start saying he did not do enough. people in florida were quite livid about bush in '92. of course, he loses to al gore. but there are other factors. ross perot running and getting 19% on the fact that he had -- read my lips, no new taxes. the economic woes of that year. but nevertheless, his inaction of andrew was noticeable and in 2005, you know, george w. bush asked president his flyover of katrina got people very, very angry. in many ways, it hurt the republican party in 2008 along with the war in iraq and the economic crisis of '08, it was sort of the third horseman of the woes that w brought on the country that he didn't seem to care enough during the time of the katrina disaster.
bill clinton and vice president biden after getting a blast of wind on the tarmac praised obama's presidential decision. >> he got up this morning and called me, said i have to go back, the storm is getting out of hand. i got to handle it. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: romney squeezed in ralliesen avon lake, ohio, and davenport, iowa, before pressing pause on this campaign. >> hopefully your thought and prayers will join with me and people across the country when you think about folks that are in harm's way. we love our fellow americans. wish them well. >> this is the closest election since modern polling began in 1936. with the candidates averaging a 48% to 48%, tie, since september. and in the perfect storm of an election comes this storm, slicing a path through battleground state, north carolina, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. potentially impacting early voting. and who knows where the recovery from the storm will be one week from tomorrow. thus the candidates are trying to project leadership. >> speaking today with the national weather servi

that is a possibility enough that i was on the horn to chicago and i said c'mon number one, i want bill clinton to do it robo kalla to every home in philadelphia and -- to do a robo call into every home in philadelphia and pittsburgh. i do not think it is in play. because again, we have not seen the romney campaign or crossroads involved. >> is ramat pavillion -- is your machiavellian approach does, like he said c'mon -- like he said, going to be affected by a blitzer? truxel -- >> it is a very small percentage. >> there is another race in pennsylvania, the senate race that senator casey should have locked up quite a while ago. it is getting more competitive. tom smith is running a very aggressive campaign. where do you see that? >> i think senator casey made a mistake. he waited too long. he held everything in check to see if the race got tight. how many of you watch your favorite football team play prevent defense and watch the lead dissipate. it happens every time. >> i think he is still the favored to win the race, but we have a candidate, a -- and oil and gas by who will put $25 million in the r
for bill clinton. doug, where does the race stand? >>doug: first, the national popular vote, you look at average, 1.5 to 2 points for governor romney. there are eight daily national polls. the governor romney has been leading in five or six. the swing states, we will get do that in a second, they are deadlocked and the momentum we talked about last week, it continues to be ever-so-slightly in my judgment, for governor romney. >>gregg: and now the rasmussen poll, the national poll, governor romney is 50 and president obama at 47 and most of the national polls are showing governor romney with a lead. now, having said that, pat, talk about the president's declining job approval. >>pat: we have talked on the program, i said the most important number is the job approval. he is holding at 50. it took a real dip since last tuesday in the polling from 53 percent to 47 and the negative is up and also in rasmussen he dropped from 50 to 47. >>gregg: what does that mean? >>pat: in advance of a vote movement the approval rating is going down. he has to be at 50 to win in my opinion and, i think, d
sending bill clinton and joe biden, to minnesota and michigan all thought to be in the blue-state column in this election, because he's trying to head fake us or he has a legitimate shot of winning those election tore kwral rich states. >> part of the reason is that there is so gosh darn much money in this year's election neither candidate is abiding by the old limits on spending and the money is out there so both candidates have deep pockets in their campaign, they say, let's take a try here, let's take a try here. it's very telling where the gambit is taking place, it's not on the red turf it's on the blue turf. it's in blue wall streets, pennsylvania, minnesota, those are places that democrats don't want to be worried about. particularly interesting is michigan which has been a bulwark of the democratic party as important to them as any other state where you see the race essentially tied. megyn: i want to talk to you about michigan. this has been thought to be blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, and it's got 16 electoral votes, chris. i mean if he -- if romney won michigan he wouldn't have
.m. eastern time. then obama and former president bill clinton will hold a rally. next up, brief remarks from obama and mitt romney in obama's weekly address. he talks about the response to hurricane sandy. gov. ronnie gave the republican address this week. he talked about the u.s. economy and the presidential election. >> this weekend, millions of americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey with governor chris cristie and witness the devastation firsthand. it is heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even the first responders to repeatedly put themselves in harm's way have had losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. as president, and promised them this. your country will be there for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i have been in constant contact with governors and mayors in affected areas who are doing an excellent job in extraordinary circumstances. we owe the first responders to have been working around-the- clock
thing to try to counteract bill clinton to some extent who's a super surrogate all by himself. mccain, rubio. >> who do they have? meatlo meatloaf. >> meatloaf, kid rock. some of that fanning out will be to pennsylvania and michigan with some pretty major surrogates, maybe not the candidates themselves. >> so the battle continues over which candidate, of course, in michigan and ohio, a bigger champion of the auto industry. a lifeblood of many ohio towns. with mitt romney's campaign running a radio ad, accusing president obama of allowing manufacturing jobs to be shipped overseas. the ad says under president obama, gm cut 15,000 jobs and planning to double the number of cars built in china. and the ad said chrysler also plans to start making jeeps in china. but a general motors spokesman told "the detroit free press," quote, we've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. no amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the u.s. and repatriating profits back into this country. okay. >> willie, what do you thin
to make that judgement. bill clinton at the democratic convention spoke about how he didn't think any president, republican or democrat, could have pulled the country out of that deep economic recession in one term. president obama, you know, even in terms of the numbers that came out this morning, strong jobs numbers said the recovery should be faster and he will have to do more in terms of producing those jobs. martha: you know, mary katherine, we're looking at the scenes of both of them out there campaigning in the final days. even when the number came out this morning i can't help but think most of this is individual feeling. doesn't really matter what the headline number is out there. do you feel like things are headed in the right direction. do you feel comfortable with the next four years with either staying with this president or do you want to give somebody else a shot. that is what it will come down to, right? >> yeah, i think that is the bottom line that's why often independents break toward the challenger at the end of the race because they're undecided because they're not
carter twice, walter mondale, michael dukakis, bill clinton, al gore, and john carry, and barack obama. caller: when this editorial board said down, we did not look at who has an r or d behind his name. the whole conversation focal point was the economy. what is best for the next four years. partisanship was set aside to examine the issues that i once care the most about, an issue that is at a high level on the national level. it has to be in a bipartisan way. this thread state, blue state gridlock that we find ourselves and as a nation is not just being saw in washington, it is being saw all over the country. i think there is a growing demand from voters -- i think this election will probably prove it -- they want washington to work. the one there to be leadership. there has to be an effort from somebody to reach across the aisle and make something happen with another party. when we sat down and really thought about where we wanted to go with this, we looked at the list. host: let me bring up one other point. we are focusing on the demo in registered in part because of mitt romney spe
. the president was supposed to rally with former president bill clinton in florida. that's not happening. president obama, he arrived back in d.c. got off air force one. you can see the pictures there. quickly got into the motorcade. normally he is flown in a rain chopper from the joint andrews base in maryland, but weather forcing a road trip back to the white house. that often happens when the weather is pretty bad. they don't want to take any security risks or chance there's. the president scheduled to make remarks about hurricane sandy. that is happening at about 20 minutes or so, 12:45 eastern to be exact, so keep it right here because we're obviously going to dip into that. going to carry his speech live, the briefing. he will talk, obviously, about what the white house and the administration is doing, the number of phone calls, conference calls that he has been making throughout the morning and throughout the weekend preparing for hurricane sandy. of course, in the midst of all of this, we've got new national polls showing mitt romney holding a slight lead in the presidential race
, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, a couple points up, a couple points up in pennsylvania. ever so slight obama lead there. but it could go either way. martha: monica? >> yeah. what is interesting we're seeing the traditional tightening of a race as we get closer and closer to election day. what is interesting that independent number you put you, martha, governor romney still has a very healthy lead among independents and doug mentioned the swing states, when you look at critical swing states states of ohio, governor romney is leading amo
